ABOUT US 1st Alliance

2014-2015 Season Objective:

One team, one alliance - Dedication toward mindful development & the complete athlete.


We are dedicated to developing junior volleyball players in a friendly, caring, competitive environment....

1st Alliance was created as a combined effort of 2nd City VBC, Club Elite VBC & Lions Jrs. VBC to bring together elite level athletes and teams to represent the Great Lakes Region at the National level. These clubs committed their resources, talent, and facilities to allow Chicago area athletes a chance for competitive success.

In our inaugural season, 2004, we qualified ALL three 1st in Houston. Since then we have continued to qualify our teams in the open divisions at Junior Olympics with successful finishes each year. We have chosen a combination of the strongest JVA events along with several strong USAV events to make our competition schedule one of the toughest in the country. Last season we qualified our 16's and 17's in the open division, 13’s and 14’s in the National division and 15’s and 18Black in the USA division.

Our tryout/evaluations are OPEN to ALL players and will be held to identify the elite players needed to create teams capable of competing physically, technically and psychologically against other Open level clubs.

We have also had plenty of success placing our athletes in top college programs over the past.
